Onu to unveil first Nigerian-made ventilator today


The National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI), has produced the first made in Nigeria ventilators.

NASENI has also produced mobile sprayers, which are to be used to disinfect Nigerian cities and homes.

The Federal Government, through the Federal Ministry of Finance, had asked American billionaire, Elon Musk for ventilators, but withdrew the plea, after a backlash from Nigerians on social media.

Minister of Science and Technology, Ogbonnaya Onu, would unveil the Nigerian-made ventilators and other devices, on Tuesday.
